I'm looking for a .44 mag revolver that I can add a scope to for LR target fun. My research so far shows the Super Blackhawk 7 1/2" as the only one advertised as including scope rings. Other models I have looked at don't seem to be configured for scopes. Do I have any other options and how do you guys like the Blackhawk? Also, could I use the same scope on a Single Six Hunter model? It comes with scope rings too.

Thanks, Mike

Its been awhile, but I once had a S&W 629 Classic DX with a 5 1/2" barrel.... It had tapped and threaded holes for scope rings. Not sure if this model is still available.

It was a nice weapon ... should have never sold it.:(

Not interested in single shots? Thompson Center Contender is an excellent option for your purpose.

Here are some of my sledgehammers (except one on the right - been traded)

The Ruger SBH is one tough revolver. Mine has a 10.5" barrel and I've had that for 20 years now. It is accurate as it is durable, build like a tank.

It's really fun shooting at steel plates pass 100 yards with a handgun, well it's frustrating too when you can't hit the target.

Any Redhawk or Super Redhawk can be easily scoped, even though they don't come with mounts or bases. A quick look at this website will turn up the bases and rings from several different companies:

One brother has a Ruger Redhawk scoped which he has used with success against coyotes, and the other brother dropped a deer at 110 yards with his scoped S&W X frame. The S&W saved deer season for him, as he had a broken wrist and could not use a rifle.

They come with scope rings and don't require mounts or bases, the dovetails are already machined into the gun.

The SRH are machined with dovetails. Some RH aren't.
